An Inside Have a look at Food52’s New HQ

Pricey Food52ers,

After seven years crammed right into a rabbit warren of workplaces within the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan, we moved our headquarters to the Brooklyn Navy Yard this spring. Working with our good mates Brad Sherman and Nina Etnier at Float Studio, who’ve designed all of our earlier workplaces, we got down to create an area that targeted on our core workforce and neighborhood wants: gathering, creating, and entertaining. It took us three years (and heroic undertaking administration by our workplace operations director Karen Levi!) to construct out a slew of check kitchens, studios, and work and huddle areas which are each deeply purposeful and welcoming—a spot that seems like house.

Now that we’ve settled in, I’m excited to indicate it to you! In our latest episode of Founder Information, I take you on a tour by our light-filled flooring at Dock72, which is well-stocked with all the pieces from classic Dansk tableware to whisks and sauté pans to cozy sofas. We’ve created a cheat sheet to the home equipment, furnishings, and fixtures that I chosen to outfit our new house. Learn on to be taught extra about every one. —Amanda Hesser, Food52 Founder
